    I hate to be picky, but he had a LOW gear ratio. The bigger the number, the lower the ratio. A 2.73 is a HIGH ratio. Low gears like 4.77s or 4.56s are good for drag racing but limit top end and fuel economy. They also wear out engines. High ratios are good for fuel economy, highway cruising and flat out top end. They aren't as quick accelerating. Remember, big number = low, small number = high.

    There was an article in one of the popular mags (Road and Track, C&D, MT?) which pitted the S2000 and and a bunch of other cars against a Camaro SS in an all out competition, circuit track included. The Camaro beat the S2000 around the track, no competition.

    Lakewood, I got a feeling EE's Evo would put a bus length hurtin' on you homey. You need more mods to hang with him. I would run him though...

    Hey EE, I am starting a "Help Roastem fix his damn rear-end" fund. Feel free to contribute, and I will meet you half way for a race It will be cheap for me, cause you know LS1's get like 25+ mpg on the highway!

    What would be fkkd up is if we meet halfway and one of us blow some sh*t up racing, and has to be towed home...and if I drive that far we are gonna drive around for an hour and get at least 2-3 dig races and 5-6 roll races and burn a LOT of GAS and TIRES.

    Not true brotha, camaro is a monster on the road course. Where do you think road racing got a lot of its roots in the U.S.? with sick ass rwd gen 1 camaros whooping ass in the trans am series. In stock trim the 4th gens sit kinda high, but will still whoop an s2000 stock for stock except perhaps maybe on the shortest and twistiest of tracks. With lowering and basic suspension bolt ons the slalom, skid pad and track numbers are right on par with very expensive exotics including porche's and ferrari's. Another testament to the world class, budget oriented performance potential of the fbody. With sick ass ls1 horsepower on the straights and great cornering potential the fbody is a great autocross car, why do you think all the nascars, trans am series, indy cars and all superior high level road course cars are rwd not awd or fwd, cause its far superior for road racing and drag racing also. I'm sure and members with autocross experience will chime in on this. I'm sick of hearing the import guys cry when they lose in a drag race that they will beat an ls1 on the road course cause most of them wont, and with suspension bolt ons probably none of them.

    If I get my rear end fixed in time, I will try my best to make it. Besides, most of you I would like to meet and race.

    Hopefully we can get a strong showing of LS1.com members...trolls & assholes not allowed!

    If it doesn't rain tomorrow, I'll have some nice teaser's for you guys. Tomorrow is "Street Wars" Domestic vs Import, here at Raceway, and I'll be recording about a good two hours worth. If I can squeeze in a run before getting the boot (no roll bar), I'll try and do so...

    maybe for a nascar circle but i would still rather have all wheel drive on a winedy road. All though ive only had my camaro 2 weeks, just noticed a hudge handling difference between it and a WRX.

    I had a 2002 S2000 as a fun car for a summer. It really was a good handling fun car. It did not have the low down TQ or raw HP, but it was fairly quick once you learn how to drive it. The power doesn't even come on until 6400 rpm's at around 40mph in 1st gear. That's when it gets a little fun. It is very fast from 40-60ish then it's losing power after that. It is RWD and can whip 360's like crazy. I had to do a good deal of mods to make my T/A handle better that what my S2000 did. They are very high tech, but pushed quite far from the factory and not worth modding. I would have raced a LS1 fbody with it, but would have expected to get my ass handed to me. One of the few cars I raced with was a 92ish 5.0 Stang from a 35 roll and I blew his doors off. His jaw dropped in disbelief, but we know what a 5.0 is good for.

    5.0 is good for...nothing?
